Beyond the colours, in the texture of the universe: The journey of Tony Nicotra

Tony Nicotra was born in Caracas (Venezuela) on 17/08/1971. From an early age, he was attracted to the world and its beauty, and was passionate about everything. He started painting in primary school, increasing his knowledge and painting technique.

When he finished high school, he dedicated himself to the study of monumental restoration, which led him to tour and restore the most important works in Italy and beyond, restoring dozens of monuments of high value, such as (the Arena in Verona, the Cathedral of Catania, the Royal Palace of Venaria Reale in Turin, the Italian Embassy in Berlin, etc.). But his attention was directed to everything around him, which led him to an insatiable search for spirituality, through science and different doctrines, of which he became a scholar. In this period of great research, he no longer found inspiration for his works, he considered them to be a period of the death of art and the artist.

Art, Science and Spirit:
a journey beyond matter

In the years that followed, serious economic problems led him even more to the search for the truth of why things happen, to the yearning for the inner quest and the true meaning of life. His continuous desire to feel free as an individual, led him to an experience of pilgrimage that marked him profoundly, the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

From there, he begins the study of quantum mechanical physics, in which he finds the answers he seeks, trying to express it in life through art, poetry and communication. He finds great inspiration in perceiving all that surrounds the universe, a great energy invisible to man, but tangible to the noble and conscious hearts of his being, this thanks to faith and studies, to perceptions that lead him to see the things of the world as a free being, a divine cell, and through all the senses that perceive the energy fields that envelop the whole. Where everything is one.

Quantum Art: a bridge between Spiritual Science and Sensory Reality

Humanity, always influenced by its historical and cultural context, evolves today with an unprecedented focus on technology, creating a parallel and challenging world. As an artist, I combine spirituality and science, inspired by mechanical and quantum physics, transforming personal experiences into art. My ‘Quantum Spiritual Art’ uses special materials to create works that change in response to emotional fields, exploring the energetic nature of matter and our limited field of vision. This artwork aims to reveal a wider reality, demonstrating the inadequacy of our senses to perceive the entire universe and the interconnectedness of our existence with creation.
